Sustainable, in every way

Being sustainable:
we don't do it because we have to,
but because we CAN!

We believe it is important to grow all our plants in a sustainable and responsible manner, and we also want this to be accessible. So everyone can really enjoy our beautiful plants, knowing that they have been grown with respect for nature. We are good to people and animals, and it shows! How? Read on to find out how sustainable we are...

Plantanious works and produces
completely climate-neutral.

We make use of geothermal energy, for which we are affiliated to the 'Nature's Heat' geothermal project. This enables us to heat our greenhouse 100% by tapping into the heat source that lies 2.5 km deep. This means that we heat our greenhouse without emitting any CO2, something that is still unique in horticulture. We are rightfully proud of that!

At Persoon Potplanten, we use residual heat from an adjacent company that has this heat left over. This also fits well with our sustainable strategy.

Solar energy

We also make grateful use of the power of that which makes many people so happy: the sun! We will save you the trouble of counting: we have a total of 1100 solar panels on our roofs! This is how we create our own power supply. And all that with the sun's rays that nature gives us: amazing!

adopt rainforest

Adopting a piece of rainforest: it may sound crazy, but this is serious business! Our organisation commits itself by donating a part of its turnover to Adopt Rainforest. In this way, we also protect part of one of the most special places in the world:

The rainforest in Costa Rica.

Working together fairly

You go faster alone,
but you get farther together.

This simple truth is at the heart of our partnership. The two related family companies Plantanious and Persoon Potplanten, found each other in 2023 with a common goal in mind: sustainable and fair cooperation where a wide range of plants are produced. 

The credo "Honesty is the best policy" reflects our approach. We believe in transparency, in keeping promises and delivering on our words. These principles form the backbone of our intensive cooperation with various suppliers. From cutting suppliers to potting soil suppliers and collaborations with companies around us, we build long-term relationships based on mutual respect and trust.

Together, we create not only products but also opportunities. We build lasting relationships that allow us to grow.

Adopt Rainforest

Plantanious works together with the Work with Nature foundation. Our tropical rainforests are disappearing at a rapid pace and an enormous biodiversity is being lost along with the trees. If it were up to us, the jaguar would soon walk around again in the rainforest in Costa Rica protected by 'Adopt Rainforest'! The place where many of our special plants originate. In order to make an important contribution to the goal of the foundation - to protect 2,000 hectares of rainforest in the next ten years - we donate part of our turnover to protect part of the tropical rainforest. To achieve their goal, the foundation puts money into protection, conservation, reforestation, education and research.
